As the minor league season comes to a close, this stock watch will pay special attention to how the Atlanta Braves' top prospects are finishing. There have been a lot of ups and downs on this prospect stock watch this season, and many of those “downs” can be forgotten if the season ends on an “up.”
The Arizona Fall League rosters were announced this week, and none of the Braves top 10 prospects will be participating, though a couple of these players will be joining the major league club when rosters expand in September. But it’s odd that the team’s best prospects will not be appearing in the offseason’s premier prospect league.
One of those prospects who might have participated is injured right now, as No. 3 prospect Jose Peraza is currently on the disabled list with a leg injury. We’ll remove him from our watch list this week.
